“Share” This Art Book
For years I’ve always had a habit of tearing pages out of art books. I would tear the pages out and frame them or use them for decoupaging projects. I never realized you weren’t supposed to tear the pages out until a friend asked me, while flipping through one of my tattered coffee table books, why all the pages were missing. “Oh, well, there’s some there…and there,” I said as I pointed around the room. So SHARE, a new art book published by New Heroes & Pioneers, seems specially made for people like me.
Featuring art from 50 international artists, the book is “shareable,” allowing you to easily tear out art with the help of tearable marks on each page. You can tear out all the pages and tack them to the wall or leave them all in the book, but ultimately the premise is to share. To fulfill the book’s purpose, it is encouraged to tear out a page and give it to a friend, fulfilling the participatory aspect of the project. If you live in Sweden, you can buy the book here. For the rest of us, you can check out art featured in the book via their Pinterest.
